On 17 Aug 08, Tracy and I did some day hiking in the Uintas. We went to the Mirror Lake
Highway, but all of the trailheads off the highway were too crowded for my tastes. So we found
a trail that didn't have anybody on it, not far from the highway. We hiked up to Haystack Lake
(Google Map), and did some cross country hiking to Rock Lake and Shadow Lake. Haystack
Lake was actually really nice, with some nice campsites. Rock Lake was a tough hike,
because it was at the back end of a very large boulder field. And Shadow Lake was really
pretty, but it had a couple of people there who had hiked up from the popular Washington
Lake. All in all, considering it was an impromptu day, we actually really enjoyed the area.
